12angrymen08-03-04There is some good stuff to choose from this week! You have Halle Berry and Benicio Del Toro starring in Danish director Susanne Bier’s first American production Things We Lost in the Fire (which just happened to open the same weekend that wildfires swept through Southern California last year). Sean Penn’s critically acclaimed adaptation of Jon Krakauer’s 1996 non-fiction bestseller, Into the Wild. Then you have the Sidney Lumet’s 1957 directorial debut 12 Angry Men being released for it’s 50th anniversary. There’s the Two-Disc Platinum Edition of Disney’s original 1961 animated film 101 Dalmatians, featuring the character Cruella de Vil and the obligatory 101 dalmatians.
